Down in the Dumps?

Do you ever get in a hole emotionally and just can’t seem to get out?  I mean really down and out don’t want to think, do anything…just kill the day in numbness?  Where not existing sounds pretty good? You are not alone.  Several times in my life I have been right there.  As a matter of fact, I started using essential oils because I was seeking emotional relief.  (Click HERE for my story.)

Since they helped me, they might help you, too.  It is worth checking out.

The reality is, most truly therapeutic-grade essential oils are uplifting to some degree because they raise frequency in the body. That is one of the many reasons I invest in the oils Young Living Essential Oils offers.  They go to great lengths to ensure we get what we pay for – exceptional quality essential oils that work.

There are a lot of oils that are well known for uplifting emotions.  My suggestion is to select one or two oils (or a blend) to use and find out what works best for you. Write down your experiences so you can recognize and remember the changes.

Just to keep things simple, here are a few of my favorite “happy oils”:

Valor:  Drop 3 – 5 drops in your non-dominant hand.  Stir the oils with your other hand.*  INHALE,  then put the oils on your feet and hold with your opposite hands –  left hand on right foot & right hand on left foot.   Hold for a minute or so until you a balanced, energetic pulse in both feet.   OR if you are in a hurry, apply Valor to your wrists and hold together for a minute or so with the intent of balancing your energy.

Joy: Apply a drop over the heart/thymus area.  Inhale.  This floral blend is uplifting and is said to open up lymph glands and adrenals that may shut down during times of grief & depression.  This blend is true to its name by bringing joy to the heart!

Stress Away:  Apply wherever.  The predominant scent of this roll-on blend is vanilla and lime.  Lime oil is naturally uplifting. Vanilla contains naturally occurring eugenol which works to reduce nervous tension.  In addition, this blend also contains lavender, cedarwood and ocotea, all calming to the nervous system.

Peace & Calming:   The oils in this blend have historically been used to reduce depression, anxiety, stress and tension.  It has the “happy” citrus oils tangerine & orange, and balancing ylang ylang oil.  The blend is completed with calming patchouli and blue tansy.  Wear as a perfume or cologne.  Inhale or diffuse.  Apply to navel, feet or back of neck.

Neroli:  This beautiful oil from orange blossoms is naturally calming and has been used successfully to uplift the mood.  Helps to strengthen and stabilize the emotions and bring relief to seemingly hopeless situations.  It calms the heart and mind which allows one focus in the present. Apply & diffuse.

Present Time has neroli, spruce and ylang ylang in it…all beneficial for emotional balance.  Rub clockwise over thymus and tap 3 times with index and middle fingers.

Hope:  The single oils in this blend have the ability to help support the body physically and mentally to give us hope.   It contains melissa, myrrh, juniper and spruce. 

Spruce:  Helps release emotional blocks and is grounding.  When I think of tree oils, I think of standing tall with strong roots that go deep into the ground for stability.  Valor, mentioned above, also contains spruce.

Citrus Oils:  Last but not least, most citrus oils are uplifting and promote feelings of happiness.  These include bergamot, orange, tangerine, lemon, lime, neroli (orange blossoms), grapefruit and petitgrain (bitter orange tree leaves).

People have had amazing results from using therapeutic-grade essential oils.  They are natural and highly effective when distilled with knowledge and respect.  That’s why I recommend Young Living Essential Oils. They are authentic therapeutic-grade essential oils.  Many oils on the market are perfume grade, diluted, adulterated with pesticides, distilled with chemicals or even synthetic.  Essential oils like that obviously would not produce the results you are seeking.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me!

All the best,


*Actually, do this with ALL of your oils because it increases the frequency of the oils and allows the oils to harmonize with your energy.

Using Present Time to Manifest Goals

Last year, I went to a special leadership conference that Young Living  hosts called Silver Club.  Gary Young, the founder and president of Young Living, shared with us that one of the keys to successfully accomplishing our goals, no matter what they are, is to stay in PRESENT TIME.  He passed the oil blend Present Time around the room.  We all were able to inhale its delightfully strengthening fragrance.   It is a blend of neroli (focus), spruce (grounding) and ylang ylang (balancing).

3396 Present Time

Gary’s advice, along with using Present Time, was:

  • Determine what your goal is.
  • Map out what steps you need to do on a daily and weekly basis to achieve that.
  • ACT… Take daily action over and over, looking ahead regularly to make sure your present steps are aligned with your ultimate goal.
  • Celebrate every success along the way… before you know it, you’ll be there!

The Reference Guide for Essential Oils suggests an effective way to use Present Time is to rub clockwise of the the thymus (down the sternum – middle front of ribs) in a circular motion, close eyes and tap three times with energy fingers (pointer and middle).  Also apply to neck and forehead.  Gary suggested another good way to use this blend:  put a drop on your thumb and suck it!  So if you catch me sucking my thumb, you’ll know I am “in the moment” enjoying my therapeutic-grade essential oils!

It is really so simple.  Stay in the Present, focus on positive actions, and look for reasons to celebrate with Gratitude and Abundance.

Applying the Feelings Kit in Your Daily Life

by David Stewart

(Based primarily on notes taken on Gary Young’s talk September 19, 2008, at the first Young Living European Convention, Vienna, Austria)
It has been said that when there is a conflict between reason and feeling, human beings will always side with feeling. According to Gary Young, “99% of life’s decisions are made from feelings.” Therefore, if you want your life to be guided by good decisions that lead to health, happiness, and fulfillment, you need to be aware of and in control of your present feelings and to learn how to release the repressed emotions of the past.
Most of our feelings from day to day are not responses to current happenings. They originate from the programming in cellular memory that was imprinted by the emotional experiences of our past that we were unable to understand, process, and resolve at the time.
These forgotten traumatic experiences function as live programming in our bodies, affecting every aspect of our lives and particularly in the area of how we make decisions. When our thoughts are limited by fears, lack of self-worth, and not feeling good enough for more or better, we make decisions that limit our success. Limited thinking leads to limited decisions that lead to a limited life far short of the God-given potential we actually possess.
By focusing on fixing your feelings, you can fix most aspects of your life–physical, mental, and spiritual. Essential oils are perfect vehicles to help you in this task because their molecules pass directly to the emotional brain and can bring us into contact with the issues we have long forgotten and enable us to deal with them and resolve them once and for all. When we clear our emotional baggage, we clear the way to manifest our true and highest potential.
According to Gary Young, “Thought equals frequency. Essential oils absorb our thoughts. They are registered in the oils as intent. Intent is directed energy. When you apply an intent-energized oil on your feet they can saturate all of your cells within 60 seconds, stimulating creative thinking and pushing negative energy out of the cells, thus increasing the frequencies of the cells throughout the body. In that uplifted state you can create a new desire to be better tomorrow. You have no limitations but those you choose to accept.”
Gary says, “Use the Feelings Kit. Apply feeling oils before work and every night before bed. Do this for 30 days and you will change your life.”
The Feelings Kit, which was out of stock for some time, is available again in a modified version. It contains six oil blends: Valor, Harmony, Forgiveness, Release, Present Time, and Inner Child. Here is how Gary instructed us to use them at the Vienna Convention:

VALOR Put Valor Oil on the soles of both feet at nighttime along with Highest Potential Blend. These blends are effective to erase limited thinking. Valor balances and equalizes the body’s energies thereby increasing oxygen intake to the pineal gland—the seat of our higher intelligence and intuitive faculties. You will wake up in the morning more self assured and more alive to start the day.

HARMONY Massage one drop of Harmony Oil on each of the energy center points of your body. There are seven of them along the spine: Coccyx, Sacrum, Lumbar, Dorsal (heart), Cervical (where neck meets shoulders), and Medulla (hollow place at center base of skull), and Pineal (center of forehead). You can also massage Harmony on the crown of the head. Harmony balances the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems which, in turn, gives us progressive creativity and feelings of confidence. “The biggest sin is not having confidence in yourself,” says Gary, “He who lacks confidence lacks life.”
FORGIVENESS Apply Forgiveness Oil around the navel with the right hand going clockwise several times and think of situations where you need to forgive yourself or others. We beat up on ourselves, but everyone makes mistakes. Yet we struggle to forgive our own mistakes and those of others. Unforgiveness is one of the most common roots of physical, mental, and spiritual disease. Unforgiveness does not make the offending party sick. It makes us sick. Forgiveness is for our own benefit. It is accomplished in five steps.
(1) Forgive yourself for allowing the person to affect your health and happiness.
(2) Forgive the other person for any harm he or she may have caused you. (This need not be done directly with the person being forgiven, but is an inner adjustment on your part.)
(3) Give the other person permission to forgive you.
(4) See the good in the situation.
(5) Be thankful for the experience and the lesson it taught you.
Inhale and apply Forgiveness Oil while going through these steps and repeat as often as necessary toclear the feelings of unforgiveness.
RELEASE Negative energy goes into the blood and then into the liver for cleansing where the toxins can remain trapped. Thus, the liver becomes a storage place for anger, resentment, bitterness, hatred, jealousy, envy, addictions, and a host of destructive feelings. Apply a few drops of Release Oil on your tongue to release the poisons of stored emotions from the liver. Rub Release over the liver area. Drink lots of pure water and do a liver cleanse.
PRESENT TIME When we live in the past or dwell on the future, we are not being productive in the present. Energize three drops of Present Time by making clockwise circles on the oil in the palm of your hand and then apply it to your thymus (the gland just under your sternum or breastbone). Besides keeping you focused on the tasks of today, this can also help you financially by increasing your abundance consciousness in the present.
INNER CHILD “When you are a child all things are possible. There are no limitations,” says Gary Young. “When you find your inner child, you have found your true self. The child in you is your creativity.” Apply one drop of Inner Child onto the pad of your thumb and then place your thumb onto the roof of your mouth. This opens the cranial sutures and stimulates the pineal, pituitary, and other organs of the emotional brain that occupy the space just above the roof of your mouth. Walking backwards while you have your thumb in your mouth looks stupid but it changes the rotation in the pelvis, elongating the spine, and decompressing the discs in your back. Thus, you can clear the nerve channels for energy to flow smoothly throughout your brain and body.
In conclusion, Gary said, “Use the Feelings Kit morning and night for 30 days. You will feel enthusiastic. Your life will be full of excitement. And people will be drawn to you like a magnet.”
(NOTE: The Feelings Kit is available from Young Living Essential Oils as Item #3125.)
